HIT Impact Study from HIMSS Informatics


Today HIMSS released a report stating an improvement in HIT adoption during an hour webinar.  Seems rather low doesn’t it?  It’ll probably come to no surprise to see the other low scores from clinicians regarding value of HIT from workflows, communication, and reporting perspectives. Many of the statistical values were broken out to show the variance between Pharmacists and Physicians…as clearly there is a true value to patient safety and communication within pharmacy. Interdisciplinary clinics with low executive buy in to the value of clinical transformation, received terrible scores. Hospitals considered “High Technology focused” received considerable higher scores for physicians versus those organizations with less than stellar investments in HIT. Read more on their website below. Let’s face it, until we are able to convince those investing in consulting services to agree to also invest in early adoption planning…we will see on going delays in implementations and increased costs.  The full report is available on Himss website.
